Book Description New York, Remagen, etc., 1919. Book Condition: Very Good. Oblong small quarto measuring 11.25" x 7.25". String-tied flexible leather with "Snap Shots" printed on the front cover. Contains 52 mostly sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs, many measuring 3.5" x 5.5" with a few larger or smaller. Uncaptioned, but a few are real photo post cards and are partially detached so they can be read (albeit with effort). One portrait is signed "P. J. Farrell" and he appears in other images as well. Slight dampstains and creases on the leather wrappers, very good; a little glue bleed-through on a few images, but overall the images are near fine.Largely made up of images of American doughboys, nurses, and family members, mostly on the home front in what is probably around Camp Albert Mills on Long Island, although at least one is of several New York doughboys (identified on the back) at "Ramagen-on-the-Rhine" as an occupying force (with one of the soldiers in German uniform and helmet). Perhaps half of the images are of soldiers in uniform, mostly at ease or with friends, several others are of Red Cross nurses, with perhaps the last dozen of family and friends often with American flags or other patriotic paraphernalia in evidence, but at least a couple with some pretty outlandish bathing costumes.A pleasing accumulation of World War One images, mostly on the homefront.

Book Description (Westerley, Rhode Island), 1918. Book Condition: Fine. Small oblong octavo. Approximately 7" x 4.75". Leather over thick card with "Pleasant Recollections" in gilt impressed on front wrap. 48 gelatin silver photographs measuring 5.5" x 3.75", not obviously captioned although one partially detached photo reveals a detailed caption on the verso. Partial newspaper clipping laid in. Fine. A very nice and focused album devoted to the Naval recruiting effort in the first half of 1918. The album shows billboards, posters, and parades all focused on recruiting for the Navy. Several images are of cars with banners promotin sentiments including, "Boys join now. Don't wait until you are drafted." A few images show recruiting posters, including one of an officer pointing and holding the famous poster by John Montgomery Flagg of a comely lass in a Navy uniform declaring "I Want You for the Navy." Others show a Navy recruiting office, several show sailors on parade, one with a float of a cardboard German submarine called the U.C. USinkum, and another of a cardboard tank. Perhaps the last quarter of the images are of sailors either on shipboard, posing in horse and buggy or in a car, and with officers. An exceptionally pleasing album, with nice images and a central theme. Bookseller Inventory # 414285
